Karrakatta Plate 2012 – Tips and Preview

With $500,000 in prize money up for grabs, the best two-year-old horses in Western Australia will line up for tomorrow’s 2012 Karrakatta Plate (1200m) at Perth’s Ascot Racecourse.

A huge field of 18 juveniles have been named to contest the Group 2 event that includes a number of promising young horses.

It stands with the WA Oaks as one of the two feature races on the Ascot card and should draw plenty of interest from punters across the country.

One of the top horses named to race is Adelaide filly Alezan Thunder but she may not even line up tomorrow after several failed attempts to get a flight from Melbourne to Perth over the past three days.

It’s never easy to pick a winner in such a big race but the Races.com.au have put our best foot forward to bring you our analysis and tips for tomorrow’s exciting Ascot feature race.

The Winner

With a decent barrier draw (4), it would take a brave individual to look past unbeaten filly Darlington Abbey ($3.80) when backing the winner tomorrow.

The Simon Miller trained bookmaker.com.au favourite has been highly impressive in her young career with highlight wins coming in the Magic Millions Perth Classic and the Listed Gimcrack Stakes ahead of Miss Solis two weeks ago.

The Placings

If Alezan Thunder ($6.50) does make it to Perth in time for tomorrow’s race, the Mark Kavanagh trained filly has proven herself to have the talent to challenge the front runners.

She came third in the famous Magic Millions event at the Gold Coast in January before running second in the Listed Pewsey Vale Stakes at Morphetville.

Fuddle Dee Duddle ($16.00) may not be fancied by the bookmakers but the Lindsey Smith trained filly is a proven performer and will be there or there abouts come race day.

She has two wins and two place-finishes from five career races with her last start resulting in third in the Gimcrack Stakes behind Miss Solis and Darlington Abbey.

The Roughie

In such a large field, a value bet is always a good option and one in-form horse at long odds is El Rijes ($21.00).

After a slow start to 2012, the gelding produced an exceptional win last start in the Perth Stakes and will get a good look at Darlington Abbey when he starts from one barrier inside the favourite (3).


With three wins from four starts, Miss Solis ($4.00) may have the form on the board to be considered a contender tomorrow but in such a large field, the Simon Miller trained filly will find it too tough after drawing the widest gate of the 18 horses.

Whether you agree with the Races.com.au tips or not, be sure to back your winners with bookmaker.com.au this weekend to get the best odds.
